A big congratulations is due for Deryck Whibley. Capping off a roller coaster ride of the past two years that included a brush with death, rehab and reuniting with his band, the Sum 41 frontman married model Ariana Cooper in Los Angeles.

People reports that the couple exchanged vows on August 30 at the Hotel Bel Air with no punk music blasting through throughout the ceremony. "They had a violin play at the ceremony and the music was mellow," an attendee told the mag. "Not typical rock that Deryck's band plays, which was surprising."

But there was a hint of rebellion on hand as Cooper reportedly wore white Converse sneakers underneath her strapless gown.

Fans know that in April 2014, Cooper found the Sum 41 singer collapsed in a kitchen after his organs failed from alcohol abuse. She rushed him to the hospital and Whibley has been sober since; the couple celebrating their nuptials with glasses of apple cider.

It's the second marriage for the singer after he wed Avril Lavigne in 2006, before divorcing in 2010. Congrats to the happy (and healthy) couple!
